National Enforcement Initiatives

EPA protects people’s health and safeguards communities by assuring compliance with the nation’s environmental laws and by taking enforcement action when laws are violated.

Every three years, EPA sets national enforcement initiatives to focus civil and criminal compliance and enforcement resources and expertise on serious pollution problems affecting communities. The initiatives are chosen with input from the public and our state, local and tribal agency partners, and their support for the six listed EPA priorities.”
